Notice to our Membership

Richard BlueFor those of you that may not be aware, our president, Richard G. Blue, passed away on July 5, 2021. We know you would join us in sending our deepest sympathies to his wife, Shawn, and daughters, Coleen and Crystal, as well as all the members of his family.

How does one close a chapter of a CEO/president who gave 36 years to the White Eagle Credit Union? What words accurately express our gratitude to the man that led this credit union from a tiny office on State Street in Augusta to an organization of three full-service locations in Augusta, El Dorado and Newton?

We don’t have them. But we believe that collectively as a board of directors, employees and members of the White Eagle Credit Union, we could fill pages in his honor. We are grateful and are determined to carry out the legacy of not only Rick Blue, but all those who have come before him for the last 86 years. From the humble beginnings of seven men meeting under an oak tree in Augusta in 1935, to what we are today.

The Board of Directors, in accordance with the Succession Plan of White Eagle Credit Union, has named Jennifer L. Pazzie as Interim President. She will continue with her duties as Chief Financial Officer as well as the presidency at this time. Our Management Team has over 175 combined years of experience with this credit union. They are up for the task and look towards the future with the combined resolution of fulfilling our mission statement of providing “dedicated and outstanding personal service, the latest technology and products, and empowering our members to improve their financial well-being.”

Paying Down Credit Card Debt

Just when you thought 2020 was devoid of good news for Americans – here is a small financial reason to smile! U.S. consumers paid down a record amount of credit card debt this past year.

Tips to paying down credit card debtWEBudget

Paying off credit card debt can seem daunting – especially if you’ve amassed quite a bit. But with determination and some solid advice, living credit-card-debt free is possible. Here are some tips from to get started in the right direction:

  1. Get organized – Gather all the information for every card on which you’re carrying a balance. Note the balances, interest rates, due dates and minimum payment for each card. Add up all the minimum payments on each of your credit cards to determine how much you must pay each month just to stay on top of credit card bills.
  2. Consider paying off the card with the highest APR first –Try boosting your payments on the card with the highest APR and paying the minimums on the remaining cards. Once that card is paid off, move on to the card with the next highest APR.
  3. Or consider paying off the card with the lowest balance first –This may be a method that’s easier to stick to for those who have a difficult time staying motivated without quick gratification. Enjoy the feeling of paying off that lowest balance – then keep paying off from there!
  4. Create a budget –If you’re not spending within your means, you’ll likely never be able to pay down debt.  Create a budget that works for you, leaving wiggle room to pay down that credit card debt. WEBudget is the perfect tool that shows your spending and allows you to create your budget.  Check it out in WEOnline Services.
  5. Be realistic – It’s important to remember that you still need to spend money on necessities (food, clothes, rent, etc.). So be realistic about how much you can put toward your credit card debt each month.
  6. Schedule Payments – You can schedule ongoing payments in WEPay.  You set the dates and amounts. Making it easier to stay ahead and payoff items quicker.


WECU Cardholder Fraud Education

WECU Cardholder Fraud Education.

It is a new year and a busy time of year for everyone including the fraudsters.

Unfortunately, fraudsters have been getting cardholders to share the information they need to commit fraud.  One way is by posing as  financial institution call center agents. They are also known to send text messages that look like they are coming from your financial institution. These text messages may contain a warning of suspicious transaction activities.

Here are some following points to help you avoid compromising your personal information:

Text and Phone Alerts
  • A text alert from Fiserv  warning of suspicious activity on a cardholder’s card will NEVER include a link to be clicked. Cardholders should never click on a link in a text message that is supposedly from Fiserv. A valid notification from Fiserv will provide information about the suspect transaction and ask the cardholder to reply to the text message with answers such as ‘yes’, ‘no’, ‘help’, or ‘stop,’ and will never include a link.
  • A text alert from Fiserv will always be from a 5-digit number and NOT a 10-digit number resembling a phone number.
What should I do if I receive a phone call from Fiserv
  1. No information should have to be provided by the cardholder other than their zip code
  2. Only answer “yes” or “no” to their questions.
  3. Fiserv will NEVER ask for the PIN or the 3-digit security code on the back of a card.  Only a fraudster will tell you that they are going to issue you a new card and need your PIN number
  4. If a transaction is confirmed fraudulent, then Fiserv will ask for more information.  The cardholder will then be transferred to an agent who will ask questions to confirm the card member’s identity before going through their transactions.
  5. Feel uneasy about the call or questions, please hang up and call WECU.

Final note:  Please check your account(s) regularly for online for suspicious transactions.  Especially if you are unsure about a call or text message you have received. If anything looks amiss,  please call WECU directly for assistance.
